Overwatch Animated Short “Honor and Glory”

So far I have been very impressed with the Overwatch animated shorts from Blizzard. They have been really well done and look like something we’d see from Pixar Studios. This week was Blizzcon and for those of us that are fans of their games we were treated to some awesome new content. Some of that new content happened to be another animated short based on the origin story of the rocket-hammer wielding knight, that goes by the name of Reinhardt. Once again Blizzard did not disappoint and definitely delivered an emotional and entertaining back story for one of their most popular characters. Personally I haven’t played much with Reinhardt but after this I might.

NEW PS4 Spider-Man Trailer

I would have to say that one of the most anticipated games to have ever been announced for the PlayStation 4 has definitely got to be the up coming Spider-Man game. It was first mentioned all the way back at E3 2016 and we got our first look at some official game play at E3 2017. If you some how missed either of those announcements or just want to go back and check them out, then click here for the E3 2016 announcement and click here for the E3 2017 game play footage. Today Marvel and Sony gave us another taste of what is to come with an action packed new trailer. Once again this game is at the top of my list of “must haves” and is even making consider upgrading from my original PS4 to the new PS4 pro.

Pacific Rim: Uprising Official Trailer

It was back in July when we got our first taste of the new Pacific Rim movie in a short teaser, but we didn’t really get to see any actual footage from the film. If you missed it, be sure to check it out by clicking here. Well here we are 4 years after the original movie was released and we finally get the first official trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising. Once again the new Jaegers look awesome and the Kaiju look even more menacing than before. Also it appears that the humans are back to doing what they do best, which is of course fighting with each other. All in all this trailer is awesome and Pacific Rim 2 looks like it’s going to be even more intense and action packed than the first one.

Marvel’s The Punisher Official Trailer

It’s finally here! Netflix has released the official trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher and it looks seriously kick ass. Just a couple days ago we got a short promotional video featuring Frank Castle making some soldiers pay for going after him. If you missed that then just click here to check it out. However, it’s not necessary to watch it before you check out the official trailer that we have posted below for your viewing pleasure. The trailer is definitely brutal in true Punisher fashion not to mention that it is set to the hard hitting sound of Metallica’s song “One“. All in all I’d have to say that this might be one of the most intense and exciting trailers for a Marvel Netflix original series.

Toys”R”Us files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

The first thing I have to say is don’t panic Nerd Nation. When I first read the news about Toys”R”Us filing for bankruptcy, I about lost my sh*t. Ever since I was a kid I have always loved going into Toys”R”Us stores and now having kids I love it even more. I’ve seen a lot of sights posting that Toys”R”Us stores will be closing their doors, but that is NOT true. At least not yet anyways. Had they filed chapter 7 bankruptcy then we would definitely be kissing their stores goodbye right now. Thankfully the toy store giant has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy and the hope is that they will come out of this with a lot less debt, and once again be competitive in the ever changing retail market.

Sonic Forces Story Trailer

Sonic The Hedgehog is back with an awesome new adventure for consoles and PC. In Sonic Forces he and his friends must save the world from Eggman or Robotnic (as we in the states know him) and his army of evil robots. To be honest I am actually really glad to see Sega putting out a good looking Sonic game that looks exciting and somewhat reminiscent of the games for the original Genesis. Based on this trailer the story seems to be fairly compelling and the game play looks to be pretty fast paced as well as diverse. Not only does it look like a classic Sonic game, but it also has some visual elements of the Ratchet and Clank games. This might be the first Sonic game that I actually purchase in years. 

Brutal Punisher Promo Video

One of the best things to come out of the many Marvel series on Netflix was of course The Punisher played by Jon Bernthal. He debuted in season 2 of DareDevil and is now getting his own stand alone series set to premier sometime later this year. We were already treated with a pretty intense teaser that was released back in August and if you missed that then just click here to check it out. Well today Marvel released a short promotional video for the new Punisher series and it already looks pretty brutal. People should know by now that you don’t mess with Frank Castle or you’re gonna end up on the wrong side of an ass whoopin….or worse. 

Amazing “Batman: The Animated Series” Collectible Villain Set

This week one of the most iconic animated series from the 90s turned 25 years old. For those of you that grew up in the 90s you probably loved or at least were familiar with Batman: The Animated Series. For many kids that grew up watching this show Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamil (Joker) defined Batman and the Joker for their entire generation. There were so many great story lines, iconic animation, and memorable villains that came out of that series. Well in honor of the show’s 25th anniversary DC Collectibles is releasing the Batman: The Animated Series GCPD Rogues Gallery action figure set. One look at this set and it’s obvious that any fan of the animated series or Batman in general will want to add this to their collection.
